More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To meet this demand, the organization that administers the universal top-level domain extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the concept behind this TLD is that all websites that use it need to comply with specific terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be developed to be viewed correctly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have induced some concerns as the top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to access a website and the way in which this should happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be designed in such a way as to be accessed by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the .MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can get a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
